A Race Against Time to Stop a Cargo Ship Breaking Up on a Mauritius Coral Reef

Rescue groups are racing to pump an estimated 3,000 metric tons of oil from a Japanese-operated bulk provider stranded on a coral reef off Mauritius in advance of the ship breaks up fully.

The 984-foot-prolonged MV Wakashio is slowly and gradually coming aside just after working aground on July twenty five. Already, a lot more than one,000 metric tons of bunker gasoline have spilled out, polluting coral reefs, lagoons and pristine shoreline alongside the Indian Ocean island’s southeast coast.
